Jean-Georges At The Connaught
Overlooking fashionable Mount Street in the heart of Mayfair, the restaurant will offer all-hours, informal gourmet dining in a relaxed, contemporary neighbourhood setting.
The eclectic, imaginative menus are inspired both by Jean-Georges’ experiences of the Far East and his signature use of South-east Asian flavours, whilst also featuring his distinctive take on British and Connaught classics, from fish and chips to traditional afternoon tea, influenced by his earlier working life and love of London. Sourcing the best of British ingredients, the menus will also reflect the simple farm-to-table, fresh-from-the-market approach long pioneered by Jean-Georges, and found at his restaurant at The Mark and ABC Kitchen in New York.
Jean-Georges restaurants are always enjoyable; however, the Connaught provides an especially nice ambiance - the food and service was exceptional.
Great late-night and post-theatre find. Excellent food and service. Suggest changing chairs and tables— not very comfortable.
The food was good; however, as I a single woman was rhere by myself, i was given the worst table in the restaurant next to a door to an outside patio that was constantly in use. They did change my table after I complained, but before offering it to a couple they apologized—not to me
Having read other reviews we felt this was disappointing, we went for lunch and the starters were for the most part were delicious. However two of our group had a shrimp salad as the main course which was dull and boring - seriously can the chef not think up a better one. It came with two dressings - equally unimaginative. Be prepared for very expensive wines. Two courses and 1 dessert between four came to over £300 - better restaurants in London for an awful lot less.
Preferences given to how and where guests are seated. Drafty but o stunning room
So incredibly lucky that this is my neighbourhood “local”. Attentive service, beautiful and comfortable seating areas and the menu choices offer something for everyone’s taste. Love this very welcome addition to Mayfair. Food truly delicious.
Service was initially poor. To say we were ignored is accurate. However once we got their attention by DEMANDING service it improved to what would be expected. Apologies and great service followed.
It's nice that this Jean-Georges can be treated casually and isn't all pomp and circumstance. The setting is very nice, and the location great. Plus there is quite a bit to choose form on the menu. I wanted nearly all the starters!
If you are going for dinner however best to book from 8pm onwards. They seem to do Afternoon Tea very late and so the restaurant is full of Afternoon Tea patrons until about 7:30 who all leave and then you are left in an empty restaurant.
They are still getting to grips with their service style I would say as well.
Delicious and creative tasting menu.
Ben has a watchful eye on the service and ensures everything is running smoothly. Food quality & service unrivalled in London, so good that i'm thinking of moving my loyal from the Savoy over to The Connaught. Desserts are superlative and the ambience is vibrant yet casual. Will be back soon.
Service is very slow and not good. Good to see some of the chef s classics on the menu : egg caviar, shrimp salad with champagne dressing. Kale salad is boring , the Mark in New York does it better. Not a lot to choose from the menu, the choice of champagne by glass is not good. They used to have Deutz champagne by glass, but even that one disappeared from the list. If you request a glass of fresh house champagne, you will discover that it was open a long time ago.
Staff is wonderful and everything is perfect
We were very late for our breakfast reservation yet staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, didn’t even flutter an eye lid! Food was fantastic, it was so good that we even ordered pancakes to see what the chef would be capable of producing...it was sooooo good, we felt guilty not being able to finish it. As previously mentioned, service was excellent, staff were wonderful and high spirited, I even had a staff member do a little dance/shimmy for me! The lovely attendant in the ladies made my morning that extra special. A lot of interesting dishes that I did not get the opportunity to try, I will definitely be back!
We have enjoyed Jean-Georges in New York and we were excited to try the London restaurant. Dinner was superb! Service was great; the wine list contained wines we knew and liked. All-in-all, it was a treat.
Went for breakfast, disappointing really, although I ordered fried eggs, dosa and bagel with cream cheese. Quite straight forward but it wasn’t tasty at all. I wouldn’t recommend it at all.
Very expensive but nice food and good service. Lovely relaxed atmosphere too.
Overall an excellent lunch ... in keeping with our NYC, Shanghai & Roppongi Hills experiences.
The quality of the green tea at the end of lunch was poor in comparison to the food and service.
What they sell as wagyu beef is not. And it is over burnt. 50 gbp a portion. Service is unprofessional, inattentive and sporadic. Someone from JG in NY needs to come over and fire the management. Disappointed.
Fantastic restaurant, food and staff. Other than some overcooked steaks, which they replaced, I can’t recommend this restaurant more highly. Beautiful location!
An extremely pleasant surprise, we are regular US customers of the New York restaurant, first time at the London one and it was extremely good. Like the mix of casual and formal quite a bit.
Went here for breakfast and really enjoyed it! The avocado on toast with two poached eggs was lovely, I’m actually craving it right now!
Had wonderful Saturday lunch with grand-daughter and husband who were visiting from Yorkshire.
We sat inside overlooking Carlos Place and elegant Mount Street.
Restaurant has been artistically outfitted and is light and pleasant. Seating was extremely comfortable with good distance from other diners.
Interesting cocktail assortment, my cucumber martini was excellent. Had very good starter of crab salad followed by superb "fish and chips". Beautifully cooked. My guests had fillet steak and lamb chops which they said were delicious. The desserts were were well presented and the look on my guests faces indicated their appreciation.
The staff were courteous and efficient. We were extremely well looked after and were not at all hurried.
Enjoyed our afternoon immensely and will certainly visit again and recommend Jean-Georges at the Connaught.
Went for business lunch and was impressed. Great light food and superb atmosphere. Nice bright restaurant.
Cannot fault this restaurant - the service was perfect as attentive as needed with a really knowledgeable waiter. The food was superb and that fact that the executive chef made time to walk around and chat to his customers was charming.
Really worth a visit - it is not cheap but a really excellent experience. I will go back.
Outstanding food and friendly service in a very stylish modern atmosphere. We enjoy eating at Jean George’s restaurants and while at London decided to try it and were not disappointed.
love it every time we are there
Nice service and ambience. Beautifully prepared food albeit with a slightly incongruent menu. Service very attentive.
Restaurant, location and ambiance was great! The food was at best mediocre and over priced.
Excellent overall experience!
Recommended by a friend. ....her reasons were borne out by the service and hospitality received. Good table layout...ie not immediately next door to another. Food was good . Wine list interesting. Expensive for a lunch £130pp incl a bottle of wine. Light and airy room. Negative aspect was the long wait to find my suitcase from the cloakroom. David B.
Excellent service! The staff very friendly polite and helpful. Amazing food amd great atmosphere! Enjoyed every minute
Amazing food but very pricey. Truffle pizza overrated but try the rigatoni and candy floss dessert!
Nice bright room and an extensive breakfast choice. We went for the Dosa as the executive chef is Indian. They did take quite some time to arrive but we were brought some complimentary fruit and pastries whilst we waited. They arrived and so did the chef to check all was well. Made up for the slow service with the extras.
Wonderful food, excellent service. One of best restaurants in London.
Advertised as casual dining but very sophisticated food and presentation. Wonderful flavour combinations and good service. Signature Strawberry and Verbena Candy-floss dessert spectacular. Don't particularly like the background music, seems unnecessary in such buzzy surroundings.
Great place service and breakfast.
Great food and great service! The chips were the only let down, a little dry and over cooked, but they were removed from the bill once we mentioned it to our waitress.
The signature candy floss dessert was excellent!
This is an amazing restaurant, with lots of quality. Excellent food, friendly & professional staff, great atmosphere. Highly recommended, We are definitely going back
Food was marginal, service was clumsy and they sat another table so close that a stranger and I rubbed shoulders for 45 minutes. So many better places to choose from. Very disappointing.
